This page discusses the coverage policy of DKpedia. For the most part, it is the same as Mariopedia's, although narrowed down to focus on Donkey Kong.

There are two franchises that, while they are not a part of the Donkey Kong franchise, are closely related to it due to their titular protagonist debuting in Diddy Kong Racing; the characters are Banjo from Banjo-Kazooie and Conker from the Conker franchise.

Mario and Super Smash Bros. are a bit more of a gray area. Donkey Kong is a part of the overall Mario franchise, and Donkey Kong appears in a majority of Mario spinoff titles (despite rarely appearing in the Super Mario series). Both Donkey Kong and Mario have distinct representation in the Super Smash Bros. series, in which Donkey Kong is a playable fighter in every title. The rules for both franchises are as follows:

  • Donkey Kong-related subjects that are exclusive to the Mario franchise or the Super Smash Bros. series may receive their own articles. For example, in the Mario franchise, the Rambi Rider is a kart within the Mario Kart series, and the Super Smash Bros. series has Giant Donkey Kong, doubling as both a form and a distinct character.
  • Any Mario game with at least one playable Donkey Kong character may receive full coverage (e.g. Mario Kart DS and Mario Superstar Baseball) because the playable Donkey Kong characters are generally as involved within the game as the Mario characters.
  • Similarly, any Mario game where at least one Donkey Kong character has a non-playable appearance may receive full coverage, as Donkey Kong tends to be well represented within these titles. For example, in Mario Party DS, he has his own board, DK's Stone Statue, and plays a role within the Story mode.

Bootleg and fanon content[edit]

DKpedia allows coverage for Donkey Kong-related bootleg games and fanon but only on the respective Bootleg: and Fanon: namespaces. As with the rest of the wiki, we do not allow explicit adult content such as pornography (see our censorship policy for more information). Donkey Kong-related fan games with violence can have articles, but images depicting gore, decapitation, and an abundance of blood are not allowed. 18+ fanon is not allowed at all. It is important to note that neither namespace may be used for experimental or joke edits, the former of which should be done in the sandbox instead.
